Soap and Glory make up - cruelty-free make up haul

Soap and Glory is one of my favourite high street beauty brands and I was so happy to find out when I went cruelty free that they don't test on animals. I love their products and the style of their packaging as its super fun and girly with a vintage 60's vibe which I think works really well.

My favourite item that Soap and Glory do has to be their famous Sexy mother pucker lip gloss, I have these in three shades, clear, rise and shine and charm offensive. I love all three of this lip glosses as they are a really high shine finish that really does plump up your lips. They are quite sticky though and if you buy one of the more pigmented shades I would recommend blotting so that it doesn't end up on your teeth.

The clear is my personal favourite as it is the best for plumping the lips, giving you a tingling sensation!

Next I really like the soap and glory mascaras, and if you are looking for a cruelty free high-street mascara I would defiantly recommend. I have both the old Thick and Fast and the new Thick and Fast High definition mascaras. I defiantly prefer the brush on the old one, it's probably my favourite brush of all time. The newer one is pretty good and I would recommend; the effect it gives reminds me of the hypnose mascara by Lancôme.

Once I've run out of this I will probably look for a more natural mascara one with nicer ingredients, like one made out of coffee as all mascaras make my eyes sting a little.

The supercat fat jumbo carbon ink eyeliner is probably my second favourite product that they do and it's my favourite eyeliner. The nib is like a pen which makes it so much easier to apply, and it goes on smoothly with a strong pigment.

The last product I have is the Perfect Ten shadow palette which is a mix of purple and pink shades. I do like this palette but I wouldn't recommend, I think the colours are quite limited and the formulation of the power isn't great. The powder is too set and the pigment is too weak so it's hard to get a good effect with this eyeshadow. My favourite colours in the pallet is the nude ones which I have been using for a base and the iced coffee shade.

This is the cruelty free statement from their website:

We understand that animal testing is a key concern for a growing number of consumers and at Soap & Glory, we can confidently state that all of our formulations are safety and efficacy tested on people. (Although you might argue about that if you’d seen the condition of some of their feet. YEEEESH. )

At Soap & Glory, we uphold very strict guidelines through our regularly audited manufacturing partners that uphold the ‘no animal testing’ policy. As well, we are fortunate that our biggest retail partner – Boots The Chemists- upholds the very same standards by funding through an organisation called FRAME, which is the FUND for the REPLACEMENT of ANIMALS in MEDICAL EXPERIMENTS) in an effort to eliminate reliance in the industry on animal testing That said – and because we feel it necessary to be transparent and to educate EVERYBODY- it’s important for you to know that no retailer or manufacturer can categorically state that ‘none’ of their raw materials or ingredients have –at some time in the past- been tested on animals. The majority of individual raw materials used in cosmetics today have been through some kind of animal testing process.
At Soap & Glory, we absolutely do not test our formulations on animals, however we can’t say that each and every ingredient that goes into them has not, at some point historically, been cleared for human use, by animal testing. We hope this answers your question. If you need any more information about animal testing, we’d suggest you contact Colipa, the European Cosmetics Directive association, via www.colipa.eu.

I would love to see soap and glory incorporating more natural ingredients into their make up, and maybe a scheme to encourage the reuse of their packaging. Let me know what your favourite products are, and what you have enjoyed trying/ or not from soap and glory :)
